The paper will present a simulation testbed in which a scenario can be setup, simulated and evaluated and where
planning tools, electronic warfare (EW) components and command and control (C2) functionality can be integrated. The
testbed is HLA (high level architecture) compliant, allows for a distributed simulation with dynamically configurable
federates, and can also be used for testing actual equipment in a simulated scenario. One of the key components in the
testbed is a set of planning tools that can be used to show ranges for sensors, jamming and communication systems.
These tools can be used not only for planning the mission (e.g. best route) but can also be used during the mission to
show the location of possible threats or the range of own equipment (sensor, jamming, communication) in different
situations. During a mission these tools can be used to support the decisions of what actions to take in different
situations. One goal with developing the planning tools in the testbed is to learn how to use planning tools in real life
scenarios. Therefore, the planning tools are constantly developed and tested with respect to technical and tactical use.
Also technical and tactical aspects of current and future EW and C2 equipment can be tested and developed in the testbed.
